“…and the wisdom to know the difference.”—the ending of that famous serenity prayer. Life can get confusing. We have cosmic memory, traits we inherit from ancestry and past lives as well as memory of our innocent trust in The Divine and then we come to earth with all that for the great adventure and try to ground here. That may be easier for some than for others, perhaps dependent upon how much cosmic memory is awaken within. Should it suddenly awaken, as it does from time-to-time when we shift out of our various hypnotic states, it can be destabilizing or a bit confusing.
I’ve been thinking a lot about hypnosis lately and my old studies of the subject have recalled how much of the time in our life we’re in some sort of trance. This has happened to everyone. You’ve been driving your car going from point A to point B and suddenly you arrive at your destination but don’t recall driving there, the details of it lost to a state of hypnotic trance of one type or another. Another example, a sudden insight about your life occurs and you realize how deeply mistaken you’ve been and what in the world you could have been thinking all along! Perhaps it has to do with a relationship or a job and maybe for years you were operating under some sort of hypnotic trance with regard to the situation and there you are having snapped out of it wondering how you got into that situation and why you stayed in it so long in the first place.
Snapping out of hypnotic trances… I’m not sure why I want to associate this tarot card, The Fool, to such a thing, but there it is. It’s just how I’m reading it today. Maybe it’s because today is supposed to be the apocalyptic end of the world? That suddenly makes me wonder about my heavily hypnotized x-tian sister and how’s she’s doing today, the end of days. Will she awaken from her trance—how many others will when they find out they’re still here tomorrow and nothing much has changed. Okay, I think the cosmic communiqué is becoming clearer now and I see the correlation of my thoughts and the tarot card, The Fool as it relates to hypnosis.
I’ve had to stop my blog writing several times to keep my appointments with clients. Where were we? Oh yeah, the christian belief that today is the end of the world or jesus is coming back
or whatever it is… wondering if there are a lot of souls out there looking up like the image on that card.
Some little voice within me is saying, “Wrap it up!” right now. Must be my inner child who wants to go out and play. “Just a second”, I’m telling her because I haven’t come to a bottom line for this post yet.
We have Uranus to deal with yet; The Fool of tarot relates to Uranus—the freedom loving rebellious energy that also relates to the individual unconscious mind. No wonder hypnosis is part of this post—that’s what hypnosis helps us connect with; the subconscious, the unconscious.
We all have times when we want to just take off without a care in the world, which by the way my inner child wants to do right now! That’s what today’s message relates to just like the x-tian fools want to get off the planet and be saved again by the savior but like I started this post, we have to ground and to take a metaphor as a metaphor… accepting what we cannot change and having the wisdom to know the difference. The end of the world, the apocalyptic event, may simply be waking from the hypnotic trance… those x-tian fools always take things so literally.
Every now and then we need to feel boundless and maybe that’s why we have these periodic end of the world predictions… to loosen our grip on reality just enough so that we can awaken from some level of hypnotic trance. Maybe we need to face the possible end of life scenario every now and again so that we can appreciate life more fully. Like the Buddhist say, “He who dies before he dies, does not die when he dies.” Buddhists contemplate the end every single day and don’t need a doomsday prediction to help them do it. The immortal self is in the continual awareness of many and doomsday has nothing to do with that awareness, for some are not hypnotized and are already awake.
Do these thoughts or this blog post today make any sense whatsoever? Hmmm…. I’m not sure but it’s got to end for now regardless… my inner child won’t sit still any longer. I’ve got to lace up my shoes and get ready to go out and play, hoping for the best as far as this blog post is concerned. This is it for now! Happy apocalypse.
